Lovely lakeside location with pool”
Convenient for the sights of Polonnaruwa, but down a narrow bumpy 1km unpaved road. Scenic location in pleasant gardens with excellent pool (very clean). Open air dining area with thatched roof and concrete/ wooden outdoor furniture in garden. Excellent drinks. Rooms basic, but very clean, modern bathroom with screened off shower, very clean. Very friendly staff. Rooms that look onto the pool and lake beyond are best. Good breakfast, (fresh fruit, fresh juice, toast, jam, Sri Lankan breakfast if you wish). Our 1 dinner here was disappointing. Excellent value for money given the location and standard of accommodation.

What an amazing place!”
Superb location by the lake, peaceful and relaxing. Where else can you watch the elephants whilst having breakfast? Photographers heaven. Room spacious and very clean and excellent breakfast. Dinner menu could be a bit more authentic. Staff very helpful and attentive. We saw a wider variety of wildlife here than on the local safari trip.

Quiet Hotel not too big and great Location”
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely Hotel. It was very clean, quiet and the staff was very helpful and friendly.The location is amazing we saw elephants next to the hotel several times. The only thing is the food could be a little more authentic (we actually asked for Sri Lankan breakfast after the dinner dissapointed us a bit at first and it became far better when we told the staff we could eat spicy). The room was perfect and big although the second storey was not finished yet but I did not mind about that.

Magic little place with outstanding staff and service!”
One of the best places where I have stayed in my whole life: clean and big rooms, eccellent service and amazing staff who accepted all our requests and that arranged for is a great (and cheap) safari to the Kaudulla NP. And when the night comes you receive the visits of the elefants at the resort's fences.. simply amazing!

Great choice from which to explore the area”
The Hotel Lake Park was one of our nicest hotel experiences in Sri Lanka. Clean, good kitchen, engaging staff and a front row seat on the wild nature of the area. Being literally on the lakeside, wild birds were in abundance and elephants in the distance came closer at dusk. On a few occasions we studied each other from only a few meters away, across the fence. This is an unusually good place to stay for a few days.

Shady, overpriced, a ripoff!”
Overpriced and very shady! Owner said he did not have accomodation for my driver after I received a confirmation email 1 month prior. I had to show him the email and he said it was someone else who sent me the communication although it had his name in the signature. The place was clearly not at full capacity with only 20% of the rooms full. Not good. To top it off, we ordered 6 beers from the bar to cool our tempers and when we received the bill the next morning, he charged us a whopping 900 rupees. That is 3x the amount we paid in other resorts/hotels in Sri Lanka. Since we checked out at 5:30am in the morning, the owner was no where to be found so I could not contest the bill. The rice and curry dinner my wife and I had was average and it was 900 rupees per person. Overpriced again. Do not stay here unless you want to pay thru the roof.

Fantastic Location”
This hotel is one of the few in the area that is away from the main road and right on the lake in a peaceful, beautiful location. The bird-life is excellent (especially Robbie the pet Brahminy Kite) and we even saw a distant elephant. It's about 3 k into town but lots of shops and restaurants are closer. Rooms are spacious with A/C but otherwise basic. Breakfast is good, as are evening meals, if limited. We encouraged the owner to consider stocking beer. You may wish to avoid weekends, esp during the August school holidays, when local family groups and wedding parties can favour this hotel due to its stunning location.

After a day of temples, nothing brings the children more joy than swimming in the pool, while watching wild elephants in the distance. Staff was so friendly and tried in everything to make our stay agreeable.

Disappointment at first sight”
Lake Front,
We selected this hotel based on the features given in the website. When we reached the place around 6pm the there was no one to receive us. The place was isolated. The 24 hour front desk? The only clue that we were at the right place was the name board that carried "Hotel Lake Park" we had to wait for about five minutes to find any life there when a young boy appeared from nowhere. A sudden down pour of rain made things worse when we had no place to wait as the entire roof of the "Reception" "Restaurent" was leaking. We were completely wet by the time we got to the rooms. The only consatoon was the rooms which were reasonably alright with hot water AC and good Fittings. The owner arrived later and attended to our requests. The staff was clueless and appeared to have had no training. We didn't bother to look for the Sauna and other facilities stated in the web. The other disadvantage is the place is isolated from the hotels and the activity. May be its good if one wants a hide away. We could have stayed at a much better place in the area, for two thirds of the price we paid.

charming view, warm staff.”
The room view is very charming! Especially the sunset of the lake. The outdoor siwmming pool and dining room is very comfortable.
The hotel is just at the edge of the lake. Every room has a charming view of the lake, the sunset is beautiful beyond expression. You can see a lot of animals walking around just by your room's French windows. The room is clean and comfortable, not so many bugs as my expectation. Staff are not good at English except the Hotel owner, but all of them are very warm guys. One shortcoming, it's location is not very convenient, a little far away from mid-town. I still missing the hotel after I back to home!
